Vanda is a photographer based in London. She is passionate about capturing images of the world in which we live and is always searching for those fleeting moments of magic that transform everyday life into something extraordinary.
She finds inspiration in the sea and its infinite power and uncontrollable energy, and in quieter scenes with intimate details that are common in nature. In her images she strives to reflect the atmosphere, feeling and sheer wonderment that our natural world can evoke within us. Photography is more than just a recording of where we have been, it is about encompassing the whole experience of being in the outdoors and trying to capture that one special moment that leaves a lasting impression on us.
To quote Vanda: “For me, photography is about the beauty that surrounds us, that we quite often don’t realise is there. The beauty that we can see if we care to look; and sometimes the camera helps us along the way.”
Her images and articles have been published in magazines, exhibited in the UK and abroad and have received awards in international competitions.
Welcome to the Horsham Photographic Society website. We meet on alternate Wednesdays from 7:45 at the Salvation Army Hall in Horsham.
Speaker: Dave Mason
